On Tuesday 12thJune our second away game resulted in a 2-1 defeat at San Fulgencio.
It was a very hot day and we took a good turnout of 12 players for the 8 a side game.
We thank Doug for organising this fixture and he was kept busy changing players on and off the pitch, with some lads wilting in the hot sun. We were well looked after at the local bar after the game, and a second fixture will take place nearer the autumn.
Our sponsored shirts looked good at both games, thanks to Gran Alacant Properties, GA Homefinders, Gran Alacant Advertiser magazine, Hispania, and La Paletta Restaurant.
We cannot play home games on Gran Alacant as we have no astro turf pitches. There are 11 in Santa Pola so will have to use one of them for home fixtures.
In our normal Thursday session, two days after this game, we had to cancel as it was a very very hot afternoon. Not good for old guys running around. We play every Thursday afternoon at the Gran Alacant Sports Centre.
For the next couple of months we will be able to use the inside pitch as nobody else has booked it. We can then continue playing, out of the summer sun.
Our ages range in the 60s and 70s with a few in their 50s. There is no running, no tackling and no physical contact. Come and join us. Ability means nothing.
We are nearing 40 weekly sessions since last August.
